Rondo racking up the assists

RONDO’S RECORD

The Celtics game notes recently had an interesting note on point guard Rajon Rondo.

It stated: “Rondo recorded 20 assists against the Raptors on Nov. 17 and it marked the sixth time in his career that he has surpassed the 20 assist mark. .. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Rondo has more games with 20 or more assists than all of the other players in Celtics history combined: Bob Cousy (2), Sherman Douglas (2) and Nate Archibald (1).”

LOCALS LEAD ST. A’s

Tucker Mullin of Andover scored a goal and added an assist to lead Saint Anselm hockey 5-2 over the University of Southern Maine on Saturday.

Mike Richard of Derry and John Hyslip also scored goals as the Hawks improve to 8-3-2 overall and 5-3-1 in the ECAC East.
